  • Our Town  & Time

    By Jodi Mailander Farrell

    Delayed, but undeterred by Hurricane Irma, the long-anticipated reopening of The Bass marks an October teeming with artistic commentary on our physical and sociopolitical spot in history. The freshly-renovated Bass hosts a second-floor takeover by Swiss-born, New York-based mixed-media artist Ugo Rondinone, whose good evening beautiful blue is a retrospective comprising works that span three decades of the artist’s practice. It includes an installation of his gayly-dressed, pensive clowns that visitors can walk among. Dimensions Variable partners with Miami Dade College’s Museum of Art + Design to bring us striking video screenings by crime expert/artist Berna Reale, whose harsh, absurd performance works dramatize injustices felt worldwide. The exhibition is only the second show in the United States for this Brazilian artist and will include the North American premiere of many of her works. Abstract art re-visualizes recent U.S. history – from lynchings to labor exploitation – at ArtCenter/ South Florida, where On Documentary Abstraction features artists Torkwase Dyson, Tomashi Jackson, Richard Ibghy and Marilou Lemmens in an exhibit that connects past to present. Fabien Castanier Gallery spotlights new works by Miami artists Hoxxoh, Andrew Antonaccio and Michael Vasquez in an urban salute to Miami called Ciudad Mágica. One to watch: Second-generation gallery owner Sergio Cernuda opens LnS Gallery near Coconut Grove with his art historian wife, Luisa Lignarolo. The gallery’s Miami-centric premiere features a one-person exhibit, Journey to the Seed, by contemporary Cuban-American artist Sinuhe Vega, alongside a group show, The Collective Debut, by Jennifer Basile, Tim Buwalda, Jessie Laino, Gabriela Noelle, William Osorio, Cesar Trasobares, Trek6, Tony Vazquez-Figueroa and others.
